This is a program that can be used in place of the Windows task manager enabling complete control of programs and providing more detailed information about the tasks.
Chameleon Task Manager is a replacement for Windows Task Manager. However it strives to give you more control over the running tasks and provides more detailed information about these programs compared to the windows task manager. The software lets some automatic optimizations to be done so that performance remains as high as possible. There are seven parameters that can be adjusted. For example, when some background programs starts using more CPU time and hard disk activities, the software would temporarily reduce its priority. That enables the currently executing program to perform faster. In case of Windows 7 I//O and memory priorities also may be reduced. A built in memory optimizer frees up memory by determining the needs of individual programs.
One major optimization possible with this tool is that you could stop unnecessary programs from starting and schedule tasks only after a certain task is done or on given days. The task manager can provide detailed information about programs such as resources, libraries used, etc. Security would be enhanced due to monitoring of both new program launches and file changes in the rest of the program as also a virus check in 40 antivirus programs. Program management becomes easier as you could add new commands to the system menu. You can view the current optimizations in the screen corner and you know what exactly is in effect. The program has more features and provides you better control but you ought to have the required understanding of what affects what. The interface and the large usage displays help.
